Taxation in Malaysia

Taxation in Malaysia is governed by the Malaysian Income Tax Act 1967 (ITA). The ITA is the main legislation governing taxation in Malaysia. It provides the legal framework for the assessment, collection and enforcement of taxes in Malaysia.

Taxes in Malaysia are divided into two categories: direct and indirect taxes. Direct taxes are taxes imposed directly on individuals and corporations, such as income tax, property tax, and corporate tax. Indirect taxes are taxes imposed on goods and services, such as sales tax, service tax, and excise duty.

Income tax is the most important direct tax in Malaysia. It is imposed on the taxable income of individuals and corporations. The taxable income is calculated based on the total income of the taxpayer, minus any allowable deductions. The income tax rate for individuals is progressive, ranging from 0% to 28%, while the income tax rate for corporations is a flat rate of 24%.

In addition to income tax, property tax is also imposed on the ownership of land and buildings. The property tax rate is based on the value of the property and is generally between 0.5% and 5%.

Indirect taxes are imposed on goods and services. The most common indirect tax in Malaysia is the sales tax, which is imposed on the sale of goods and services. The sales tax rate is generally between 5% and 10%. Other indirect taxes include service tax, which is imposed on certain services, and excise duty, which is imposed on certain goods.

In addition to the taxes mentioned above, there are also other taxes such as stamp duty, capital gains tax, and inheritance tax.
